My ghetto brewing keggle
89% German Pils
4% Caramel 40 L
The remaining 4% was Acid malt because my water ain’t right.
1.058 estimated post boil OG
Mashed for 1.5 hours at 154. The center of the grain bag temp was 149 when I pulled the grain out.
Bittered with simcoe. Cascade at 10 minutes, chinook at 5 minutes and simcoe at flame out. 52 IBUs. US05 yeast pitched and fermented at 69 degrees. 1.5 hour boil.
The predicted FG is 1.013.
I racked 5 gallons into fermenter at 1.060. My OG was high but I don’t have a problem with more alcohol. I will be fermenting this for around 12 days and bottling straight from primary.
Realized 11 days into fermentation that the lid on my bucket was cracked so I bottled at 11 days. The beer finished at 1.010. It was pretty tasty going into the bottles. I really like the hops…hardly a trace of citrus or fruit. Very earthy. I am very impatient so I drank two bottles yesterday after 2 days in the bottle. I think this will be a stable brew for me.
